Carlos Gomez injured his wrist Sunday and the Brewers center fielder has been diagnosed with a sprain, which mean he’ll sit out at least another week.

It’s particularly rough timing, as Milwaukee hosts a four-game series with St. Louis beginning Thursday.

Gomez has followed up a breakout 2013 season with nearly identical numbers, hitting .282 with 21 homers, 29 steals, and an .827 OPS compared to .284 with 24 homers, 40 steals, and an .843 OPS last year. In his absence the Brewers figure to use Gerardo Parra in center field after acquiring him from the Diamondbacks at the trade deadline.

    Wow. Critical series, just as the Cards are taking over the lead. Cards have Wacha back, too. Is this the long predicted end to the Brewers’ magical season?

      As a cardinals fan I hope so but I doubt it. At worst the Brewers still look like a wild card team at least.

    Not sprained ego?

      What an exceedingly dumb comment. I f you knew anything about him you’d know he is extremely down to Earth and a genuinely nice guy that loves playing baseball for a living.

        All of what you said is true, but GoGo has a pretty healthy ego.

    Honestly the way he’s been swinging the bat lately Parra is better off in the lineup

      I’m sure that’s not true. Gomez has had a slow week but the guy is lightning in a bottle for any game.

      If you like defense, then yeah, go Parra. But Gomez at less-than-best > Parra.

    I am sorry to hear the Brewers are going to be at less than full strength.
    You always want to beat someone at their best. That in mind, the Cardinals are in the same boat with their pitching issues. Should even things out a bit.
